Listowel Military Tattoo 2015

It’s here; the longed for weekend is upon us.

The flags are out.

The traffic management plan is in place.

The bunting is strung.

The shop windows are decorated.

Bring it on!


 Here are a few photos from previous years to whet your appetite. I hope to have lots of photos from this year’s event  next week.
